It has a few bumps here and there on my computer too, but it's smooth for the most part. What are your system's specs?

The same things happened to me - It did the first option near-instantly, and the second option sat on 0% for about 10 minutes (I thought it might've frozen) - Just be patient

Build 7100". This screen stays forever (at least 1 hour, let's see if it finishes), with little harddisk activity.
When I interrupt and go into safe mode, it reads "preparing windows for first start" and then a window pops up, saying that setup cannot continue in safe mode - reboot, same problem!
I am having the EXACT same problem. Phenom 9600, ECS A780G mobo, 2gb ram, hd3870 video; my computer is no slouch. Any ideas?

It's just slow for some reason. Wait it out, it will work.

This is indicative of Windows detecting another display adapter, possibly without any display connected to it, and considering it primary. Your desktop is showing on that other display. Just right click the desktop and select Screen Resolution. If no window displays hold down the Windows key and repeatedly press the right or left arrow keys to bring the Screen Resolution control panel into view. There you can select your current screen as primary.

Then use diskpart to activate the proper partition that setup created.

Or you can just expand the install.wim manually with imagex right onto the bare media, run bcdboot and restart. That's by far the quickest!!!

I'd be happy to walk you thru it on messenger or something.
Hi,
I've had this problem also. I can't really leave my pc overnight since i have about 6 fans and it would make it hard for me to sleep :P
Can i plug in a second hard drive and install while still in windows on the first drive somehow? that quick option sounds good :P. I saw that the installer starts in windows but can it install to a second hard drive?

You don't start the installer at all. Do exactly what this says: Install Windows 7 FAST without a DVD or USB device

Windows 7 will not install

OK I have a computer I just built it's a MSI board not sure the model if it's needed i'll grab it other then that 800mhz OCZ ddr2 4gb ram 500 gb Sata drive. 2.6 quad intel and a 4870 1gb ati radeon with a sony sata dvd drive. I tried installing win 7 64bit and it installed but took FOREVER then when it reboots and I think I can finally use my computer the mouse and keyboard shut down out of no where so I can't move the mouse anymore or use the keyboard tried a usb and ps/2 keyboard no luck. so then I figured what the hell i'll just install vista ultimate 64 bit. that should work rite and no that didn't work either I just got the BSOD during install and then when it finally did install the computer reboots and I get an error message before the login screen saying that the computer had encountered an error and needs to be restarted so I did that and it just keeps saying the same thing. I burned win 7 multiple times and speeds and nothing works and like I said vista won't even install all the way but when it was installing the files and did do it a whole lot quicker then win 7 did. and on top of that my xbox gave me 3 wonderful happy lights of doom sorry for the rant but if anyone can help me with this I would be greatly appreciated only thing I can think of is my board mite be bad.
